1. Keep Them Clean and Dry

You can go outside and dance with your doggie while it rains. But make sure to wash your pet with warm water and antifungal soap or shampoo when you get home. This is very important if you live in a city.

Because of the high levels of pollution in cities, rain is frequently acidic. This can harm your pet’s skin and coat and must be removed to prevent the development of rashes or skin diseases. Washing with plain water is excellent, but using antimicrobial shampoo eliminates the risk of infection. To reproduce and multiply, bacteria and other microorganisms require a warm, moist environment.

2. Protect the Paws

Pet paws are far more sensitive than they appear. Allowing your dog to step on an extremely hot or cold surface is one of the most common ways to injure their paws. 

Running in the backyard, digging a hole for his bone, and going for a walk in the park are all activities that your puppy would struggle with if his paws were not healthy. As a result, if you take your pet for a walk during the monsoon, make sure their paws are properly protected. Before removing them, apply a thin coat of paw butter (Vaseline + Coconut Oil is a great DIY recipe).

When they return, wash their paws with lukewarm water to remove any dirt or debris that may have become stuck between the pads. After washing the paws, thoroughly dry them. Inspect the paws for cuts and bruises regularly. Rain frequently washes sharp glass or metal scraps out in the open. Your pet may inadvertently step on them and injure themselves. During the monsoon, don’t ignore any wounds. They can become infected very quickly.

3. Clean Their Ears Once a Day

They are also more likely to be exposed to ear infections in wet weather. Every day during the monsoons, you must clean their ears with a cotton bud. During the rest of the year, cleaning them once a month is fine.” Pet grooming salons also provide thorough ear cleaning.

4. Keep Them Away From Frogs and Lizards

During the rains, keep a close eye on your dog because frogs and lizards, which can be extremely toxic, will crawl around randomly. If you catch your pet with one in his mouth, induce vomiting by putting vinegar or salt on the back of their tongue to flush out the toxins.

5. Use Protective Rain Gear

Raincoats and doggie boots, as goofy as it sounds, may be able to prevent a lot of damage to your pet’s coat, ears, and paws. If your pet does not like wearing these items, simply wash and dry him thoroughly when he returns home.

These simple steps can keep your pet safe from the problems that the monsoon brings. Always be careful of what your dog is eating. Their diet should boost their immunity and compensate for the lack of exercise during the rainy season. Always be on the lookout for any signs of skin problems and consult a veterinarian as soon as possible if something goes wrong.

6. Dental Care Is Very Important

Many breeds are predisposed to gum disease, which can be fatal. Infection caused by this condition causes premature tooth loss and is known to cause infections in major organs, including the heart valves.
